Started January 2007, Brown Eyez Magazine is the first independent holistic health publication to blend entertainment with health information. B-E-M has been on the forefront of the health movement, encouraging the community to participate in healthy behaviors such as eating right, exercising regularly, maintaining positive relationships, and yes, even listening to positive music!
Positive art, culture and entertainment charges the senses for positive healthy life choices. Cultures around the world that are healthy and positive sing and create art about it to reinforce that lifestyle. A well-rounded lifestyle that is centered around health and wellness is the key to unlocking the human potential. We do not have to live with dis-ease. We can be healthy and well everyday!
B-E-M's motto is "Healthy Bodies, Healthy Communities." This is the next step after health and wellness is the center of a person's lifestyle. If your community is unhealthy, riddled with social ills, then how can you truly be healthy? Ensuring your communities health, improves your health. Less stress, fresher vegetables, more resources, the list goes on. Some people call it paying it forward, we call it a way of life. More and more people are concerned with their health, as a community we can help each other get healthy and ensure health for generations to come! \
